2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Cloudy amber. Malty as hell. Huge fluffy head that wouldn’t die. Bready nose, malty, yeasty, bakery flavor but a tad astringent. Not great but good.
A: Gold color with a thin white head. Lacing.
N: Corn, sulfur, floral elements with some peppercorn, cracker, and there is lavender among other florals. Melon and grape.
T: Sweet and fruity with the melon and peppercons dominating as it warms.
M: Light body, spritzy carbonation, no alcohol.
O: Very fine pilsner even if it is named after the Packers. Well done. BlackBeerPG (1015) - Darien, Illinois, USA - NOV 28, 2017
Taste: crisp, wheat-like, lemon and bright caramel malt notes with a clean finish. Mild cracker and malt nose.Pale gold hue, mostly clear, with a white foamy head and some lace. Easy drinker. BeerInHeaven (509) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 29, 2017
clear straw gold with a medium white head. Aroma of wet hay/grass. Taste of light malt with a hint of bitter. Semi-sweet on the finish. Not bad. phranq (250) - - JUL 1, 2017
Lemon and bread dough in the nose. Taste is bright sweet malt and lemon zest. Finish is clean but could use more hop bitterness. felsenpils (185) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 16, 2017
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a quickly dissipating white head. The aroma is is not clean, it smells like caramel malt. The taste is OK, but the hop bitterness is quite low and the residual sweetness from the overuse of caramel malts is quite apparent. Glad to see that it is not dry hopped, but the bittering hops need to be increased and the amount of caramel malt used decreased.

Keg at World of Beer Wauwatosa, 9/13/16. Hazy golden, large foamy white head, good retention. Aroma of bready malt, lemon, toasted malt, citrus. The taste is earthy, Noble hops, doughy pale malt, green apple. Medium bodied, crisp. wlajwl (7285) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Aroma is malts, light fruit and a hint of nuttiness. The flavor is nutty malts, fruit/berries, a hint of oak/wood and a long and slightly funky/sour/tart finish. muzzlehatch (4976) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2016
12 ounce bottle from Badger Spirits in Janesville, WI, served a few minutes out of the fridge in a Coors Banquet glass. A loud fizz and the liquid very nearly gushes, filling the glass and then creeping up in the bottle faster than the foam settles in the glass above the very pale yellow-gold bubbly body...I’ve had this beer before a few times and never seen that happen, so I’m hoping there’s no infection problem....nose is fairly weak, grainy with a touch of honey and an odd bit of mint...on the tongue it’s quite sweet for a pils, without much carbonation, slightly syrupy/sticky, only the faintest trace of hops at the finish, a bit soapy. Well, I think this might be a bad bottle, because this has certainly been better before; then again this brewery isn’t incredibly consistent in my experience so I’m going to let the chips (and the beer) fall as they may and rate it for what it is. Hopefully I’ll get a better sample again at some point. thomashall (1602) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - AUG 27, 2016
